      Hi Folks,   As you may have noticed if you're a regular visitor to our forums, things look a little different as our forums have just undergone a significant upgrade and now have a fresh new look!  We're aware that there are one or two little "niggles" with the upgrade that still need ironing out, but we're on the case, and normal service will be resumed shortly!   In the meantime, if you've got a problem with a BitTorrent product, but are unable to post about it in the forums, you can also find support via the following links: BitTorrent Client Help Center BitTorrent Sync Help Center BitTorrent Bundle Help Center BitTorrent Bleep Help Center   Thank you for your patience as we work to improve your forum experience! UPDATE: 1st Feb - We're currently investigating issues with notifications - earlier issues that may have been preventing some users from logging in have now been resolved. UPDATE: 2nd Feb - Looking for the BitTorrent Sync forums? They've moved to http://forum.getsync.com (you can use your existing BitTorrent forum credentials to login)

I used to download with bit torrent, but now whenever I try to download , the window shows connecting to the peers but it is not able to do that infinitely , wherever I can browse easily.

What information does the trackers tab give with the offending torrent selected?

Clueless one here with a similar problem: I've used bitttorrent for a while now, but still don't really understand what's happening.  I'm now running it on XP through a proxy [sOCKS5].

 

Mostly it works and I've done "checkmyip" and that always works fine.   BUT: I have a few that are just _stuck_ on "connecting to peers",.   Does that, basically, generally mean that it is a broken torrent [e.g., noone is actually supporting it any more]?  As I look at my bittorent right now, one torrent that is working fine has about 16 entries in the tracker section [in addition to the usual [dht], [local peer discovery] and [peer exchange]].  I just restarted it and two or three are 'working', I have a few "invalid URLs" and among there others there are a few timesouts and errors.  BUT: the download actulally started long before the trackers started updating.  So I clearly don't understand how trackers fit into the protocol,.  And in any event that torrent is going fine.  Another torrent, though, has just two trackers and both are "connection timed out"  and is stuck on "connection to peers".  Both [timed out] trackers list two peers.

 

Is there some way to figure out what's going on?    My guess is that it is a dead/orphaned torrent.  [is there someplace where you can check if a torrent is actually 'alive' or not?]  Thanks!

Do the torrents work without the proxy settings enabled?
